Move collections, favorites, passwords and more from Microsoft Edge

Whether you are graduating or transferring schools, take your most valued web research, favorites, passwords and more from your school account to your personal account.

Move collections

Collections helps you keep track of your ideas on the web, whether you're shopping, planning a trip, collecting notes for research or lesson plans. Collections also syncs across your signed-in devices, so if you use Microsoft Edge on multiple devices, your collections will always be up to date on all of them. Let's learn to move collections from one account to another.

  1. Make sure that you have a personal Microsoft account. That means an account that ends in @outlook.com, @hotmail.com, or @live.com. If you don’t have an account, you can create one at https://signup.live.com/signup.

  2. Sign in to Microsoft Edge with both your school and personal accounts. See these instructions on how to sign in with multiple profiles.

  3. Open the Collection you want to copy on your school account browser. To open any collection, select Collections  Collections icon  at the upper-right corner of Microsoft Edge and select any collection from the list to open it.
